If your system is creaking at the seams, or your people are struggling to process the volume of work, it’s unlikely to be for a single reason, so why should it be fixed by a single solution? Software has an important role to play but there are no “silver bullets”. How can new software alone solve a workflow structure that is out of date and no longer functional?
In any business, tried and trusted processes remain central to the company’s workflow long after their effectiveness has disappeared. As the company grows, simple tasks such as manual entry and handling of invoices, delivery notes, purchase orders and mail-outs, become more time consuming and can produce a bottleneck unless you take on more staff.
For sectors such as professional services, handling large documents manually can waste time and money preparing them, in paper form, for scanning or copying, while regulatory requirements are also constantly changing.
There is no quick fix for this. You require a solution based on a deep understanding of your business, departments, people and processes. This is the only was to identify the right hardware or software solution, which will increase the efficiency of your business and productivity of your staff.
So where do you go to obtain real advice on how to improve your business?
